All Arthur and Maurice want to do in life is act. And they'll get an unexpected chance to do so to save their very lives when they unwittingly become wanted criminals. On the lam, the two end up as stowaways on a luxury cruise. But this is no ordinary ship. It's a wacky world of ingenues and intrigue, including revolutionaries, deposed royals, illicit lovers, suicidal singers, wealthy sheiks and pretentious performers.

It's also a ship on a course with disaster, unless of course, Arthur and Maurice can do their biggest number ever, as heroes.

  • 5 stars "Hilarious madcap adventure. Tucci & Platt are excellent together. I love their scene together in the bakery. Platt's scene with the old wrestler is not to be missed. Hysterical. Also, Campbell Scott is delicious in his pursuit of "Lily". My husband and I love this movie! It's one of very few he is willing to watch again. Don't miss this one!"
